Hathorn Hall resident assistants training outdoors

Move On In

College can be one of the best experiences of your life and much of the excitement comes from that first experience living away from home. First and second-year students live in university residence halls where you’ll discover all the advantages of living on campus. You’ll be close to classes, minutes away from dining options and in a safe, supportive environment.

Make Yourself at Home

Support systems, social opportunities, modern amenities. It’s all part of the experience of living on campus! UWRF offers two types of residence halls: traditional double rooms (available for all students) with shared common areas and bathrooms and suite-style double and single rooms (for upperclass students) with shared kitchenette, living area and bathrooms.

Embrace Your Space

The living quarters are great, but what about the people? Among our 11 residence halls are a variety of living and learning communities. These communities connect students with common interests or similar majors. Living and learning communities are optional but they’re a great way to connect with your fellow students.
